W : 1/0
uae.agleague.ae: Sept. 22, 2017
 
A combination of resilient defending by Dibba and wasteful finishing from Al Jazira attackers handed the Fujairah bases side a famous 1-0 victory over the reigning champions in the opening fixture of matchweek 2 of the Arabian Gulf League at Fujairah Stadium.
 
The visitors suffered an early blow as summer signing Ahmed Khalil was stretched off inside eight minutes with a muscle injury. Last season's Young Player of The Year Khalfan Mubarak came in to replace the injured Khalil.
 
Dibba stunned their visitors ten minutes after the restart when Ciel's in-swinging corner-kick caressed Romarinho's head as he failed to clear it before centre-back Khalifa Al Shayari converted it into the net for his first ever Arabian Gulf League goal.
 
The Pride of Abu Dhabi came close to equalizing just after the hour-mark but Romarinho's header hit the woodwork.
 
Paulo Comelli's men held on for the remining half an hour and despite five minutes of added time, Al Jazira failed to find the back of the net in the absence of last season's top goal scorer Ali Mabkhout.
 
Bouncing back from a 0-5 defeat at Al Wahda, Dibba collected their first three points of the season while the defeat ended a seven-match winning run in the league that stretched as far back as March.
